1
Norwich get the game underway.

Glenn in Carlisle said: "Fancy Wigan to win again today but think we'll scrape it! 2-1 Mcmanaman and Kone! Suppose it is March after all! COME ON LADS!" Great minds think alike, that's the scoreline I reckon!

Conor Donnelly (Wigan Fan from Belfast) says: "Wigan to win 3-1 today with Kone 1st goal...." Cheers Conor, I also think Wigan wil win but Norwich will be harder to break down, hence only the two goals!! Still if your bet comes in it will be 12/1 payout!!

Craig in Horsford, Norwich says: "We simply cannot afford to lose this match. A point minimum but I do believe we can win this. I agree with 2-1, but the canaries will take the points back to Carrow Road and we'll be a couple of draws or a win away from safety. Then bring on RVW (van wolfswinkel) next year and a top ten finish! On the ball city!!" That's the spirit Craig, enjoy the game!!

Referee - Howard Webb (S Yorkshire)

Teams - Norwich: Camp, Martin, Turner, Bassong, Garrido, Howson, Johnson, Snodgrass, Elliott Bennett, Hoolahan, Kamara. Subs: Steer, Whittaker, Holt, Fox, Becchio, Tierney, Tettey

Teams - Wigan: Robles, Scharner, Alcaraz, Figueroa, Boyce, McCarthy, Gomez, Beausejour, Maloney, McManaman, Kone. Subs: Al Habsi, Caldwell, Di Santo, Henriquez, McArthur, Espinoza, Stam

FIRST VIEW - Brian has emailed to say: "Hoping Wigan win but don't wish I was there, enjoying Majorcan sun, 24 degrees today beats 3 at the DW, sorry lads." That sounds lovely Brian, you'll be needing a drink to cool you down there!!

My view - I think Wigan will win here but it will be close so 2-1, which pays a handsome 7/1 with Sky Bet!

Teams - Wigan striker Callum McManaman has overcome an ankle injury to retain his place in the starting line-up. The 21-year-old aggravated the problem in the Latics' 2-1 win over Newcastle two weeks ago, in which he made the headlines for the wrong reasons with a knee-high challenge on Massadio Haidara but escaped punishment. Wigan boss Martinez has named an unchanged side from that game, so keeper Ali Al Habsi and captain Gary Caldwell are again on the bench while, for Norwich, Lee Camp starts in goal with Mark Bunn suspended.

Fancy a bet? Sky Bet's Tim has been in touch to say: "Wigan are well backed at 5/6 to continue their impressive form, which has seen them win four in five in all competitions, with another victory, while Norwich are 100/30 to record a rare away win." Cheers Tim, the draw is also available at 5/2 for anyone who thinks this will end in a stalemate.

Welcome to the DW Stadium where Wigan entertain Norwich with a massive three points up for grabs. What do you think the outcome will be today? Send your views / predictions to steve.pass2@bskyb.com and I will post up the best throughout the afternoon.
